  Phony Benoni: I'm going through a collection of Closed Sicilian games which indicates that the alternate game score, with 30.Kg2, is correct. That move does seem more likely to force resignation than 30.Bg2.

Oct-12-14  Thief: I do not understand 18... Qxd4.
Jul-10-17  PaperSlim: Eric Lobron must have been drunk
Jul-10-17  RookFile: So, is there a better move than 18...Qxd4? Remember that a7 is hanging too. I think black is already toast at this point.
Jul-10-17  Nerwal: After 17. d4 Black had no good move and chose the lesser evil. 17... b6 is met by 18. e5.
